Interventional Radiology will have an international and interdisciplinary character aiming at communicating and disseminating scientific knowledge, clinically relevant discoveries, and experience in the field of interventional radiology to researchers, academics, clinicians, industries and the public worldwide.
Image- guided minimally invasive procedures have an increasing role in the modern interdisciplinary armamentarium for the treatment of a large spectrum of pathologic conditions. The interventional section of Frontiers in Radiology will aim to accelerate and highlight knowledge and high-quality original research in this important field. This section will aim to assess, evaluate, and advance the development of novel intravascular and non- vascular percutaneous interventional procedures, including cutting edge technologies such as targeted therapeutic drug delivery in oncology or clinical applications of artificial intelligence. The section will have an international and interdisciplinary character aiming at communicating and disseminating scientific knowledge, clinically relevant discoveries, and experience in the field of interventional radiology to researchers, academics, clinicians, industries and the public worldwide. Solicited original research articles include but are not limited to the following topics:
o Intravascular interventions
o Intra- arterial and intravenous embolization
o Arterial and venous re-permeabilization and stenting
o Portal venous interventions
o Intravascular drug delivery
o Radioembolization and chemoembolization in oncology
o New hybrid vascular imaging technologies
o Non-vascular percutaneous interventions
o Image- guided biopsy
o Image- guided drainage procedures
o Percutaneous tumor ablation
o Transhepatic treatment of biliary strictures
o Percutaneous biliary stone extraction
o Percutaneous urinary interventions
o New 3-D and hybrid imaging technologies
High-quality original scientific articles contributing insights within this exciting academic field will be considered for publication and can be either clinical, experimental, or technical in nature. Since a certain overlap with the Diagnostic section of Frontiers in Radiology is unavoidable, a close collaboration will exist between these two sections.
